FI Real Estate Management (FIREM) has bolstered its commitment to its industrial offering with a series of investments and a new talent hire, as it enters into 2020.
A leading landlord with industrial sites across the UK – including Wrexham, Astmoor and Drayton Manor to name a few – FIREM has spent the last 12 months taking steps to upgrade its existing units and expand across its sites, with the overall sum of refurb works exceeding £1m.
In line with this investment, former business and investment lead for Wrexham Council, Rebecca Morgan has now joined FIREM’s industrial team as its business development manager. Rebecca has spent much of her career to-date supporting businesses in the area and appreciates the extent of regional demand for quality industrial space.
During her time working for the council, Rebecca supported a range of businesses – from large multinationals to local start-ups – and is now keen to help businesses grow and expand, taking advantage of the opportunities that FIREM have to offer. Rebecca commented: “I’m delighted to have joined the FIREM team, who have always worked closely with their tenants and local councils to maximise the potential of the areas they’re operating in, which is essential for local and regional growth. I’ve seen this commitment first-hand over the years and am delighted to now be supporting this vision as part of their team.”
FIREM’s UK industrial portfolio is extensive. The largest estate within the portfolio is Wrexham Industrial Estate. At 8 million sq. ft, it is one of the largest estates in the UK., FIREM is currently the largest landlord on the site managing 500,000 sq. ft of existing industrial space, with ambitious plans to develop 200,000 sq ft of new build in 2020 and further plans to expand and develop more quality industrial accommodation.
